Child moved into our house, should dad still pay the mother child support

Q) My husband is ordered to pay child support and he is paying every week. As of October 9 his child moved into our house with us. He is still paying the mother child support. The child is 18 out of school and working full time. What can we do to stop the child support from going to the mother. Or can we stop the child support?

A) You and your husband need to contact the nearest child support enforcement office and inform them of the change in his child status and request a Modification of the existing child support order. It would not be wise to stop paying before changes to the order has been made.

  1. You will need to provide evidence of your reduction of income in order for the judge to modify your child support obligation. The best evidence is the most recent tax returns and recent pay stubs. After the court orders a specific child support amount, it is often the case that one parent may seek to modify the child support agreement. However, a parent seeking child support modification will need to prove a change of circumstances.

    Steps To ask for a court hearing to change your existing child support order:

    Fill out your court forms.
    Have your forms reviewed.
    Make at least 2 copies of all your forms.
    File your forms with the court clerk.
    Get your court date.
    Serve your papers on the other parent (and the LCSA if involved)
    File your proof of service.
